This display travels to every reunion. It lists every service man of the 452nd Bomb Group who was killed in action.
The information was compiled by Ed Hinrichs and daughters, and donated to the 452nd Bomb Group Association.

Request from ROLF ZAUGG, a trusted source.
He runs the private B-17 Museum, and has been keeping in contact with veterans and the descendants of crews of the bombers and fighter jets. The B-17 Museum in Utzenstorf is unique. It shows the history of foreign airplanes in Switzerland from 1939 to 1945.
Rolf Zaugg exhibits files, clothes and other possessions of the plane crews that surfaced after the War. Everything in his collection is original.
